At forty-eight, Tim Cranmer is a secret servant in premature retirement to deepest rural England. His Cold War is fought and won, and he is free to devote himself to his stately manor house, his vineyard, and his beautiful young mistress, Emma.

But no man can escape his past, and Tim's lives twenty miles away, in the chaotic person of Larry Pettifer: bored radical don, philanderer, and for twenty years Tim's mercurial double agent against the now vanquished Communist threat. Between the two stands an unresolved rivalry.

As the story opens, Larry and Emma have disappeared. Setting off in pursuit of them, Tim discovers that he too is being pursued, by his former masters. The hunter becomes the hunted. Raiding his own past like a thief, he follows Larry and Emma into the minefield -- physical and emotional -- of their new allegiance.

Our Game is John le Carre at his incomparable best.

About the Author:

JOHN LE CARRÉ was born in 1931. After attending the universities of Berne and Oxford, he taught at Eton and spent five years in the British Foreign Service. The Spy Who Came In from the Cold, his third book, secured him a worldwide reputation. He currently lives in England.

From AudioFile:

The narrators of John le CarrŽ's novels are famous in the audiobook world for their hard-edged intensity and accurate renditions of the dialects and accents of varied classes, as well as German, Polish, Russian, and American characters. Tim Cramner and Larry Pettifer, double agents and childhood chums, have been left with unfulfilled agendas at the end of the Cold War: Tim's is to live in elegant, self-satisfied retirement with his young lover, Emma, and Larry's is to find a better cause worth dying for. Their mutual quests for self-identity comprise the heart of this artful psychological thriller. Franklyn-Robbins has the literary and vocal talent to make this complex novel of voices work as performance literature. He emphasizes Cramner's retrospective impatience and contempt for his own blindness in not seeing soon enough the obvious truths of his life. He also knows to soften him with an underlying self-forgiveness, engaging the temper of the book with a slower pace and welcome pauses at crucial scene changes and chapter endings. P.W.
